Austin's good ol' boys blushed like schoolgirls when the University of Texas Longhorns donned special gear for a K-State bout last fall. Team members paraded onto the field slicked out in rose-colored socks, gloves and warm-up sneakers – no doubt getting a little ribbing from their backcountry brethren who didn't get the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month memo.

With the Longhorns ranked second nationally for all-time bowl game participation, now is the perfect time to toast this civic-minded team with a Lone Star-inspired drink that's in the pink. Muddle one strawberry and 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice in a mixing glass. Add 1/2 oz. simple syrup, 1 1/2 oz. Tito's vodka, 1/2 oz. Licor 43 and 1 oz. combined of Angry Orchard apple cider and ginger beer. Shake well, double strain and serve chilled. Garnish with strawberry slices.
